A luxury sport utility vehicle (SUV), the 2014 Porsche Cayenne offers quick acceleration, going from zero to 60 miles per hour (mph) in 4.3 seconds and reaching speeds of 175 mph. The vehicle performs well off road and can tow up to 7,716 pounds with its 550-horsepower, fuel-efficient Turbo S engine.
Rated an 8.8 out of 10 by Kelly Blue Book, the SUV integrates Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) Plus. This system, along with the model’s active suspension management and dynamic chassis control, eases cornering by giving the vehicle an additional thrust on its outside rear wheel. As a result, the 2014 Porsche Cayenne performs similarly to a lightweight sports car. Other features of the SUV include ceramic composite brakes to enhance fade resistance and improve braking distance as well as an automatic transmission with a start and stop function.
